Day 65 Harry takes a train ride 07/08/16

It was to be a difficult sail from Watchet to Padstow.  Strong tides and an 80 + mile passage with a head wind so we gave Harry an opportunity for a bit of respite from us. 

A good  friend Lesley offered to have Harry for a couple of days whilst Kaz I and new crew member Megan concentrated on getting Tikka to Cornwall. 

It was to be a ride on the Steam train for Harry and me while Kaz and Megan worked on the passage plan and getting Tikka ready to go. So it was a train ride to Minehead where my mate from days in the Royal Navy,  Wayne Bartlett picked Harry up and drove him to Barnstaple where Lesley was waiting to take him on to mid Devon. A well traveled explorer in the making.

I'm sailing around the UK with family and friends onboard our yacht, Tikka, to raise awareness and money for " Action for Children "
